FGF1 and insulin control lipolysis by convergent pathways

Highlights•FGF1-FGFR1 signaling suppresses adipose lipolysis to curb hepatic glucose production•FGF1 suppresses lipolysis by inhibiting cAMP/PKA axis via PDE4D-S44 phosphorylation•Overexpression of PDE4D in the adipose tissue of diabetic mice corrects hyperglycemia•FGF1/PDE4D antilipolytic pathway is responsive to fed/fast states SummaryInexorable increases in insulin resistance, lipolysis, and hepatic glucose production (HGP) are hallmarks of type 2 diabetes. Previously, … Continue reading FGF1 and insulin control lipolysis by convergent pathways
